What should sustainable clothing meet?

Discover the five aspects

Sustainable clothing is clothing produced in a responsible and environmentally friendly way. This takes into account the impact on people, animals and the environment. But what must sustainable clothing meet to truly be labeled sustainable? On this page we elaborate on a number of important aspects.

Sustainable clothing is made from sustainable materials, such as recycled fabrics. The result is clothing that is not only beautiful and comfortable, but also contributes to a better world. When the aspects below are met, we speak of "sustainable clothing.

Aspects to be met by sustainable clothing

  • Environmentally friendly production;
  • Socially responsible;
  • Durable material;
  • Transparency about the production process;
  • Longevity.

Eco-friendly production

Sustainable clothing should be produced in a way that minimizes its impact on the environment. This can be done, for example, by using environmentally friendly materials, such as recycled fabrics. But also by ensuring energy-efficient production.

Socially responsible

Working conditions in the factories where the clothing is produced must meet high ethical standards. For example, good working conditions and fair wages for employees must be ensured.

Durable material

Sustainable clothing should be made of sustainable materials that are biodegradable or can be recycled. This prevents the clothing from having a negative impact on the environment after use.

Transparency about the production process

The company behind the sustainable clothing must be transparent about how the clothing was produced and the materials used. This allows consumers to make an informed choice and ensure that the clothing is actually sustainable.

Long lifespan

Sustainable clothing should be of good quality and have a long life so that it does not need to be replaced soon. This reduces the impact on the environment and extends the life cycle of clothing.

Popularity of sustainable clothing

Social engagement on the topic of sustainability is growing rapidly. We see this reflected in the demand for and popularity of sustainable corporate clothing. Several aspects are important for the increasing popularity of sustainable clothing. We highlight some important aspects:

  • Responsibility;
  • Quality;
  • Fashionable;
  • Growing offerings.


More and more people are becoming aware of the impact the garment industry has on people, animals and the environment. They are therefore looking for alternatives that better reflect their values.


Sustainable clothing is often high quality because it is made from sustainable materials and produced under ethical conditions. As a result, it has a longer lifespan and holds its value more than regular clothing.

The quality also manifests itself in the wearing comfort. Because in that area, too, sustainable (company) clothing does not fall short of regular clothing. And that is very important. Because clothes will only be worn when they are comfortable to wear.


Sustainable clothing is no longer limited to boring and functional clothing. More and more brands are designing and producing sustainable clothing that is trendy in look and feel.

The supply of sustainable (corporate) clothing has increased dramatically, making it increasingly easy to find and buy sustainable clothing. This makes it possible for more and more people to make sustainable choices.
